An ordinance was introduced to repeal
ordinance No. 63, which granted a ten
year contract to the Electric Light,
Power and Water Co. to furnish water
to the city for fire protection. It was
explained in introducing the ordinance
for the repeal of said ordinance granting
such contract, that in view of the fact
that this contract was the principal issue
at the last election, and that a majority
of the voters decided against the -existing
contract by electing those who were
'opposed to it, it woi Id be only fair to
all parties concerned to give the people
a chance through their chosen represen
tatives, to make arrangements for city
water that would be satisfactory to the
people, and if they should decide to in
stall a new water plant or grant a char
ter to another company, would entail no
loss on the present company if the ques
tion :ia settled before they commence
laying mains. On motion of McDonald
- the ordinance passed first reading; Blow
ers and Hand voting no.
The following bilf was presented, al
lowed and ordered paid:

. The question :"Uesolved, that the re
cent Anthracite Coal Strike was Justi
fiable," was discussed at the literary
last Thursday night, and decided by the
three judges in the affirmative. Parties
from Mount Hood were in attendance.
The next question will be: "Resolved
that we as American People are More
Indebted to our Natural Resources for
our Greatness, than to our form of Gov
ernment." With the present encroach
ing evils and the tendency to one man
ipower, this question is pertinent, and
we predict a good hearing.

also commenced on a 100 rick lot for the
same party.- The wood is being cut on
the Busev' place which he recently sold;
about th'ree )re of which, already
cleared, will be set to apples in the
Win. F.hrck has let a contract to
Jas. Eggert and Thus. Lacy for the clear
. ing of ten acres of laud. The demand
for the peerless Hood Itiver apptos is
an incentive to increase the acreage
and with a prospect for water upon the
high land next season, no doubt clo
ver fields and "straw berries will also en
gage the attention of the people here.

Fred and Ruby Chandler and Bert
Tyler were visiting friends in this vicin
ity last Sunday.
Miss Ellen Dodge is down in the Crup
per neighborhood for a week's visit
among her friends and former school
mates. Four of our neighbor boys took a rifle
and shotgun and went up to the top of
the mountain west of here with the in
tention of getting a bear or something
larger. They hunted until about 4
o'clock when they accidently ran on to
a bear track. Instead of taking the
trail and following the bear, they took a
trail for home and the way they came
down that mountain would put a wild
broncho to shame; a Sahara desert
camel couldn't begin to step in the
tracks those boys made. They reach
ed home all right and say they are
going out to get that bear yet, if they
can get some one to go with them.
The Shiftless Poor.
As the winter season comes cm apace
the usual calls for assistance are crowd
ing in on our county judge, who is put
to his wit's end to discriminate as to the
merits of each. Not only is the county
besieged, but charitable institutions and
individuals are in the same box.
The noor we have alwavs with us and
referring to such the Divine Teacher
said, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
the least of these, ye have done it unto
me." There is a class of alleged poor
to whom we believe this does not refer,
and these we have more abundantly
than the deserving ones. The latter it
is next to impossible to find for they are
not going about parading their wants on
the street corners, and the only way the
comity can determine their need is
through some neighbor from whom they
cannot hide their destitution. Such as
these (he county and private philan
thropists would gladly assist, particular
ly as the season for gift-giving is close
There are in The' Dalles large families
who yearly make their appeal to'the
county or others, whether times are
prosperous or otherwise. To them it
makes no difference. The public owes
them a living whether they have at
tempted to earn it or not. In these
families are grown sons and daughters
lying idle in unkept shanties; The har
vest season comes and is gone, and while
the cry has gone up- iroin all sides for
harvest hands, the boys have cat in the
shadoof some tree and whittled; the
farmers' wives have begged for help at
this time and the city housekeepers
have placed advertisement after adver
tisement in the papers endeavoring to
secure assistance in the kitchen, but
still the husky daughters of these "un
fortunate poor'' lounge about.
Winter conies and the mothers of
these "poor" boys and girls call upon
the judge with a pitiful tale of we and
beg from door to door of neatly-kept,
prosperous homes, where the sons and
daughters have been out in the world
battling for a livelihood ever since they
left school, after receiving not the least
hit more education than is offered to the
children of the parents who now beit of
their "more fortunate" neighbors. Why
this difference? Simply localise the
one has made the most of their opxr
tnnitif s ; the other has done nothing but
live off the remainder of the community.
These people, ol course, row ill at
times, and a howl at once noes up and
the entire city is exercised and assist
ance comes from all sides. The physi
cian is called to administer to them; to
leave hit bed in the dead of the night
and make his wav to some shack far
back of the city ami give them the nec
essary assistance, without money and
without price. One of these men said
the other dav, "If you don't come when
vou are sent for I'll know tue reason;
there's a law that comndsynu todo
When, as a matter of fact there is no
What applies to the physician in
such cas-s applies to ali professions, all
trades. The shiftless live off the in
dustrious. We would not be understood
to say that in many cases those w hom
the county and others are assistine are
not worthy and such as should be
helped ; but the majority, we must say,
br'"1" t" t'ie other class.
But what's to be done in the matter?
In a Christian community none will be
left in want; and yet "are we not in
mnnv instances simply fostering idleness
by helping such? I it uncharitable to
refuse aid in such cast's? While such
questions are propounded each year,
they remain unanswered, f ir our people
would rather foster a w .iole army of
undeserving idlers thsn that "one of the
least" of the deserving ones should
remain in want.

Looking fur Boys.
The London Free Press strikes the
nail on the head In the following:
"When we see the boys on the
street and in public places we often
wonder If they know that the business
men are watching I hem. In every
bank, store, or olllee, than will soon
be a place for a boy to fill. Those who
have the management of the affairs of
the business will select a boy In whom
theyJiave confidence. When they se
lect one of the boys they will not select
him for his ability to swear, use slang,
smoke cigarettes, or tap a beer keg.
These men have a few of these habits
themselves, but they are looking for
boys who are as near gentlemen in
every sense of the word as they can
find, and they are able to give the
character of every boy in the city..
They are not looking for rowdies, and
when a . hoy applies for one of these
places and is refused they may not tell
him the reasou why they do not want
him, but the boy can depend upon it
he has been rated according to big be
havior. Doys cannot afford to adopt
the habits and conversation of loafers
and rowdies if they ever want to be
called to responsible positions.
There is gladness in her gladness when
she's glad there is sadness in her sad
ness when she's sad but the gladness
of her gladness nor the sadness of her
sadness is nothing to her madness when
she's mad. There is kickness in her
kickness w hen she kicks there is lick
ness in her lickness when she licks; but
the licknessof her lickness is nothing
to her uixness when she's nix. There
is crossness in her crossness when she's
cross, there is glossing in the glossness
of her gloss but the crossness of her
crossing nor glossness of her glossing is
nothing to her bossing when she's boss.
